Vintage Bulova Accutron Restoration

We're Vintage Accutron Repair Specialists.  Our staff of watchmakers is highly skilled and is either a Certified or Master watchmaking professional.  We've received specific Accutron repair training from Bulova's Master Watchmakers and Trainers many years ago.  Our watchmakers attend continuing education classes either at AWCI or WOSTEP every year.

As restoration specialists, our services  "bring the timepiece as close to the manufacturer's original specifications and standards as humanly possible".

Our Accutron Repair Photo Gallery has many more examples of our repair & restoration work.

Because of our relationship with Bulova, we've purchased their remaining New/Old Stock of all vintage 214, 218 Series & 224 Series Accutron parts.  Within a few days of receiving your Accutron, we'll provide a detailed estimate for repair-restoration.  All estimates are in written form and are sent by either email or postal mail, whichever you request.

Our Accutron Restoration Process: 

A Mail In Accutron Restoration Form is provided for your convenience.  It's an online form that can be filled out on your screen, then printed and packaged with your Accutron.   (See "Packaging & Shipping" suggestions below.)  Once your watch arrives, it is locked in a secured location with fire and theft monitoring 24/7/365.  Within 4-5 business days following arrival, a skilled Accutron watchmaker will diagnose your Accutron and we'll provide a detailed, written evaluation with clear instructions on how to proceed.  Estimates are normally sent by email on the Wednesday following arrival of your package.

We accept many forms of payment including Personal Check, Credit/Debit Cards & E-Check.  Payment is not processed until we have a clear shipping date for your Accutron.  At that time, you'll be notified that we expect to ship your Accutron within the next 7-10 days.  We'll notify you again when your Accutron is packaged for shipment, AND provide Tracking information.  We then ship repaired Accutrons by 2nd Day Federal Express with special Jeweler's Insurance for high-value items.  This is the only shipping method we use for repaired/restored Accutrons.  You'll want to read our full Accutron Service Warranty information.

Unlike many repairers, we charge No Additional Fees for repair of indivudual Accutron Case backs, pushers, crowns, or battery door components & locking rings.  When we quote "case restoration", the price is all-inclusive.

Since Bulova called Old Father Time
to purchase their remaining Vintage Accutron parts inventory, it's a crucial advantage when repairing and restoring these great tuning fork timepieces "CORRECTLY".  We're able to use new/old stock parts instead of cannibalizing one 50-year-old Accutron to repair your watch.


will typically scour the internet searching for old, used components to install in YOUR watch.
Every week we receive Accutrons for re-repair that a hobbyist has ruined.  Usually the Accutron owner is so upset that they refuse to contact the hobbyist again to remedy the problems.  Or they've contacted them enough with no solution, that they've given up.

When we receive these Accutrons, we find all sorts of incorrect or missing parts, wrong procedures in assembly, etc. -- most were never even cleaned.
We're now receiving so many of these "hobbyist" jobs that, depending on the severity of the issues, our watchmakers are declining the repair.
Of course, we do sympathize with the Accutron owner's situation.  After all, they were promised "expert" Accutron repair, with genuine Accutron OEM parts, and claims of "quality" services...  and all for
cheap, cheap prices...

Packing & Shipping Your Accutron

Pack your watch in a box that's approximately 8" X 10" X 4" in size  or a size that can't easily be lost by the carrier.  We recommend wrapping the item in bubble-wrap  and then packing in void air bags.  We recommend using USPS Registered, Insured Mail for shipping timepieces to us.    We do not recommend using UPS or FedEx Ground carrier services.  The handling is usually too rough.

Please make no reference to the contents on the outside of your package.  Our address label  at the bottom of our
 Accutron Repair Form  may be used for USPS and there's a separate label for FedEx or UPS Air.  Shortly after your package arrives  we'll send a detailed estimate by email.  We'll then wait for your reply before proceeding. 

In order to receive your estimate by email, you'll need to have Adobe Reader installed on your computer.  This service is free and can be downloaded here

Please send your watch only in
packing that can be discarded

Do not send original, manufacturer or keepsake boxes.
